Hi folks,
I got the script which runs perfect on my linuxbox as long as it´s not
running inside mod_python. Below I show you the mod_python version that
is producing the error code you can see on the bottom of this mail. As I
am new to mod_python but can still remember such strange effects when
playing with mod_perl for the first time some years ago I think it´s
time for some guru´s advice
Maybe I didn´t get any global restrictions (like always using the strict
pragma under mod_perl) so far. Please give some hint where to look

    thanks a lot


------the script------

from mod_python import apache

import xml.dom.ext
from xml.xslt import XsltException
from xml.xslt.Processor import Processor

sheet = """

                    <b><xsl:value-of select="/main/test"/></b>
                    <em><xsl:value-of select="/main/testBody"/></em>


def handler(req):
    req.content_type = "text/plain"
    the_req_file = req.the_request
    a = string.split(the_req_file, " ")
    tmp_file = string.split(a[1], "?")
    file_name = tmp_file[1]
    path_prefix = "/var/www"
    path = path_prefix+file_name
    raw_data = open(path).read()

    processor = xml.xslt.Processor.Processor()
    result = processor.runString(raw_data, ignorePis=1)
    return apache.OK
